West Ham’s rather public chase for a marquee marksman has taken them all around the footballing world, as they bid to lure a lethal frontman to celebrate their seismic stadium move.
One of the names more frequently linked with a move to the Hammers is that of AC Milan forward’s, Carlos Bacca.
The Colombian has also been touted as a potential for London rivals Arsenal, though Jack Sullivan recently confirmed on Twitter that the Irons had agreed a fee with the R0ssoneri over the former Sevilla man.
We have agreed a fee with AC Milan on Bacca and he has said, he will tell us in the next 48 hours if he is coming!!

Not long after, the 29-year old posted a photo on his Instagram of him sat in front of luggage, presumably on a flight.
He is thought to have a £26m valuation slapped on him by the San Siro giants.
“We left, new goals, new dreams, new hopes, new season. Come on Carlos Bacca of your hand always my god”, it was captioned.
One of Europe’s most lethal forwards, the Colombia star has carved himself quite the reputation during spells in Belgium, Spain and Italy for his devastating finishing ability.
Is Bacca the man for West Ham? Are they overpaying? Let us know your thoughts below…
